Hi everyone! I am a little late posting today....I starting a knitting project and the rest of my crafts have faded into the background, LOL! But I roused myself and used the Match the Sketch sketch and the beautiful Create with Connie & Mary colors for a birthday card for my MIL:
I started with a thick white cardstock base....I already had this one scored, but I used it anyway...the fold is on the side, but that's okay! I have been intrigued with the creations I have seen in blogland where images are stamped very faintly in a light color, then watercolored, I'll show you my first project later in the post, but for this card, I stamped the flowers from Touches of Texture in Smoky Slate, then watercolored them with Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party inks:
I also stamped the speckles and lace image in Pool Party, then heat embossed part of the birthday sentiment from Cottage Greetings in white, and added the "happy" in FF, stamped on a Stitched Shapes oval:
It's difficult to see, but I also added some silver thread behind the sentiment and a little sliver of silver glimmer paper to the banner. My final touch was a dragonfly, colored, cut out and popped up:
And here is the inside:
Now, here is my first attempt at this technique. My Big Shot plates, which I have since tried to flatten out, were so warped that my die slipped, and I did not get a good cut, but I wanted to show you this little snowman from Jar of Cheer anyway:
Here's the final result....not the best, but still cute and I want to try it again! Thanks for popping in today!
Cassidy only asked for a couple of things for Christmas, and a "doll that looks like a reel baby" was one of them.....can you tell she was excited about receiving it? Love the look on her face!
Enjoy your day!
